Man Up: Struggles all around for Eagles' D

Tuesday, November 17, 2009, 11:36 AM
The player-by-player breakdown of the Eagles' defensive performance against the Chargers: Trent Cole - Did you notice him lining up at left defensive end instead of right defensive end? He and Juqua Parker flip-flopped, but it didn't seem to do Cole much good. He was a non-factor, failing to pick... Read more

Man Up: The red zone struggles

Monday, November 16, 2009, 3:43 PM
Our weekly player-by-player look at the Eagles' offense: Donovan McNabb - I've heard some rip him for the Eagles' red zone struggles. And others are going overboard since he threw for 450 yards. McNabb discovered after two drives that the Chargers were not going to let him hit huge plays down the... Read more

Man Up: Big plays kill Eagles' defense

Wednesday, November 11, 2009, 9:14 AM
We start this week's edition with a text I received from friend and MTC reader Joe Monte. It came in at 10:33 p.m. Sunday night: I think instead of breaking down each defensive player, just break down Fokou and his 13 penalties. Ouch. And with that, the player-by-player breakdown of the Eagles'... Read more

Man Up: Few bright spots on Eagles' offense

Tuesday, November 10, 2009, 10:26 AM
A player-by-player breakdown of the Eagles' offensive performance against the Cowboys: Donovan McNabb - He just looked out of sorts all game. McNabb probably should have been picked off on a bad throw intended for DeSean Jackson on the first series. Did the Eagles have protection problems? Yes. But... Read more

Man Up: Cole, Witherspoon stand out on 'D'

Tuesday, November 3, 2009, 2:51 PM
Yesterday, we did the offense. Today, the defense. A player-by-player look at the Eagles' defensive performance in their 40-17 win over the Giants on Sunday: Juqua Parker - OK game from Parker. The Giants definitely preferred running to his side and had some success in spots. He made a couple good... Read more

Man Up: Eagles' offense nearly flawless

Monday, November 2, 2009, 11:47 AM
A couple weeks ago when we did Man Up following the Raiders loss, I had a tough time saying anything good about anyone on the Eagles' offense. This week, it's the opposite. Here's the player-by-player breakdown of the Eagles' offensive players in their 40-17 win over the Giants: Donovan McNabb -... Read more

Man Up: Eagles' offense struggles vs. 'Skins

Thursday, October 29, 2009, 11:14 AM
Time for our weekly player-by-player look at the Eagles' offense this week. I've heard from some of you that you'd like a sentence, when possible, describing each guy's overall play. I attempted to do a little more of that. Brian Westbrook - Looked good on three carries before leaving the game with... Read more

Man Up: Eagles' 'D' shaky vs. Raiders

Wednesday, October 21, 2009, 9:35 AM
Yesterday, we did the offense. Today it's the 'D.' Our player-by-player evaluations of every player: Victor Abiamiri – He didn't have an especially strong game. For the second straight week, Abiamiri was flagged for a personal foul roughing the passer penalty. This one was offsetting, and... Read more

Man Up: Abysmal day for Eagles' offense

Tuesday, October 20, 2009, 10:13 AM
Time for our weekly player-by-player look at the Eagles' offense. We'll do the 'D' tomorrow. Brian Westbrook – He was one of the only bright spots for the Birds on Sunday. Westbrook was Donovan McNabb's safety valve for much of the day, catching nine passes for 91 yards. He added 50 yards on... Read more

Man Up: Eagles' defense vs. the Bucs

Wednesday, October 14, 2009, 11:00 AM
We did the offense earlier this week, and now the defense. A player-by-player look at how Sean McDermott's unit performed against the Bucs. Of note -- by my count, Moises Fokou was the only active defensive player to not see the field during the first half. Victor Abiamiri – He was called for... Read more
